Total People’s Commitment to Safeguarding

Total People are committed to safeguarding and promotes the welfare of all learners and expects all staff to share this. Total People have a range of policies and procedures in relation to safeguarding which cover the 6 R’s; Recruit, Recognise, Record, Reporting, Respond and Review.

Total People have adopted safer recruitment practices to ensure that suitable people are appointed to job roles.

Safeguarding is a shared responsibility of all staff and is included as part of staff job profiles. As part of induction training all staff are required to attend and complete safeguarding training and any subsequent update courses which are provided.

Total People have processes in place to record learner concerns and staff concerns. Total People have developed links with Local Authority, LADO and Social Services so that we can direct our concerns to the best people so that they can address them where appropriate. We have clear and visible policies regarding information sharing, to ensure that only relevant information is shared with our partners. We respond with sensitivity to all learner and staff concerns with their welfare always being paramount.

We train all of our staff to recognise the signs of abuse:

• Physical abuse
• Emotional abuse
• Sexual Abuse
• Neglect
• Bullying

Total People’s safeguarding policy is reviewed annually to reflect new legislation and amendments to current legislation. If required the appropriate members of the Safeguarding team will hold a serious case review.

Total People and British Values

As part of the Prevent strategy Total People will be promoting Fundamental British Values to reflect life in modern Britain.

These values are Democracy, Rule of Law, Respect and Tolerance, Individual Liberty.

Fundamental British Values underpin what it is to be a citizen in a modern and diverse Great Britain valuing our community and celebrating diversity of the UK.

Fundamental British Values are not exclusive to being British and are shared by other democratic countries as a way of creating an orderly society, where individual members can feel safe, valued and can contribute for the good of themselves and others.

These will mirror the principles and values of Total People and all the work areas that we support. These will occur throughout your programme and will be promoted by the staff with whom you come into contact.
